How to calculate FGTS profit?
The distribution made by Caixa considered the index of 0.02748761. The amount paid depends on the balance available in the linked accounts at the end of last year. In other words, the more balance he had, the more profit the worker received.
Therefore, the transfer was R$ 2.75 for every R$ 100. Those who had R$ 2 thousand in their accounts, for example, received R$ 54.98 in FGTS profit.
How to consult the values?
The consultation of deposited amounts and other information is available on the FGTS website or application, or at Caixa’s bank branches. On the internet, just access the chosen tool, login with CPF and password and choose the option “FGTS Statement”.
